Updated: Dec 3, 2019

During the quarter-season move, Team Irvington decided to drop Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki per his poor performance at the start of season.

Gesicki was unable to yield in any scores throughout the first four games and the trend looked like it was going to continue.

The team then picked up New York Jets tight end Chris Herndon, who was originally suspended the first four games of the season. He was then plagued with injuries that prevented him from taking the field after his suspensions was up.

Herndon was eventually able to play week 10, but unable to hull in a touchdown. This would be Herndon's only appearance this season as he put on IR before the following the game with a rib injury.

"It was a terrible move," said Mosley. "We should of just stuck with Gesicki. At least he gives a chance with him actually playing."

Going beyond Team Irvington and looking at the SPM 101 league, it was an old school fantasy league. Meaning that the only ways to get points are through touchdowns- and only touchdowns.

This can affect those who participate in the league that are accustomed to modern fantasy leagues, because it changes they way the approach the draft and how you rank players and their value.

For example in a modern PPR league, top end wide receivers and pass-catching running backs are king and who you want to target in the early rounds. For they add the value with a point-per-reception, boosting their total scoring output.

This differs from an old school league, because you want to target those who have the highest chances of scoring touchdowns on a per game basis. This boosts the value of quarterbacks and goal line running backs that will more often than not, find themselves in the end-zone.
